A super lightweight and simple jQuery date picker plugin to display a clean calendar from which you can select a date for your app.

Features:

  • Popup and inline modes.
  • Dark and light themes.
  • Decade, year or month views.
  • Custom templates.
  • Custom date format.
  • Localization.

How to use it:

1. Include the jQuery datepicker plugin's CSS in the head of your document.

<link href="jquery.datepicker2.css" rel="stylesheet">

2. Include the jQuery datepicker plugin's script at the end of the document.

<script src="/path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.datepicker2.js"></script>

3. Create a text input with data-select="datepicker" attribute to enable the date picker when clicked on.

<input type="text" name="date" id="date" data-select="datepicker">

4. Customize the date picker by overriding the following settings.

$.datePicker.defaults = {

  container: 'body',
